Innovative Learning Program Now Enrolling.
The Goddard School, a premier preschool childcare center for children from six weeks to six years old, opened on Monday, August 20th at 13201 NE 27th Avenue in the Salmon Creek area of Vancouver, WA. The public is invited to a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 at 10 am.
The new state-of-the-art school will offer flexible schedules for children Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm and was designed to accommodate approximately 130 children. Onsite owner, Michelle Solari, along with the school’s educational director, Selena Deer, and faculty, which includes teachers trained and experienced in early childhood development, are eager to welcome children into this nurturing environment where the curriculum encourages learning through play.
“Children are highly encouraged and stimulated to develop at their own pace in a warm environment supported by a team of dedicated teachers. The Goddard School FLEX™ Learning Program is based on a unique learning continuum that encompasses developmental guidelines, formative assessments and child-focused lesson plans that are delivered in a creative and fun environment with a child-centered approach to meet each child’s individual needs. The year-round program focuses on building a strong and balanced foundation of emotional, social, cognitive and physical skills.” ~Michelle Solari, owner, Salmon Creek Goddard School
